PostPosted: Tue Jun 19, 2012 6:33 pm    Post subject: OPCs around London/Kent? Reply with quote

I'm currently in a search for an OPC around London to carry out a major service on my Boxster 987. My closest OPC is the East London one, however they quoted £1200 for a major service. Surprised

So could anyone suggest any other OPCs around London or even Kent which I could try?

I'd like to stick with OPC services as my current service history is all OPC services..

Thanks. Thumb

But OPC @ Tonbridge is just under an hour away from me. Hopefully there are a others closer by, if not then I'll give them a call. Very Happy

Bandit Bandit BooSmile , don't worry about the distance to travel , to the Porsche garage . Better to spend a day or two to get the job done right . I recommend JZM , they are on M25 junction , may take few hours to get there , but worth it . Bandit Bandit Bandit Bandit Bandit Bandit

Hello there. I cannot recommend Porsche Byfleet enough. I live in central London. I've used them a couple of times including a 6 yr service and found them to be competitive as well as providing a fantastic level of service. My car is actually there at the moment having a few warranty related issues addressed.

Thanks for the reply cubasteve. thumbsup But I ideally wanted to keep full OPC service history. Even though it's a LOT more expensive.. Sad

I'll try giving them a call. Very Happy

I've tried giving a call to OPC in Tonbridge, but they quoted £1050 to service (I supply my own Mobil1 oils). This included the major service, brake fluids, spark plugs and checking/replacing drive belts. Does this sound about right? (Scary price) frustrated

Can't comment on pricing for a Boxter service, but I use OPC Tonbridge and they are always happy to collect and return my car.

OPC Byfleet definitely gets my vote.

There are five closer OPCs, however, I am very happy to travel to Byfleet given the excellent customer-service and very competitive prices.

I've introduced two people, including 'aak', to this centre, and both have been very happy!

Received my car back from OPC Byfleet last week. Completely agree with Niro, perfect customer service.
